Demdike Stare & Jon Collin
Sketches Of Everything
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (DDS)
21,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Demdike Stare and guitarist Jon Collin drift high plains ambient scapes in a dub-strung cooperation cast somewhere between Bruce Langhorne’s Hired Hand soundtrack and a screwed Prince Jazzbo - proper stoner vistas, trust! Technically Demdike Stare’s first official musical collaboration, ‘Sketches Of Everything’ was recorded between Stockholm and Manchester during Winter 2019 and Spring 2020 and finds the duo’s Miles Whittaker & Sean Canty inspired by guitarist Jon Collin to create some of the most evocative scapes of their career’ Demdike match Collin’s strung-out train of thought with a mix of layered and smudged backdrops that turn the trip toward unexpected midnight hallucinations, stoner sludge and ravines of feedback.
Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe - Levitation Praxis Pt 4
Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe
Levitation Praxis Pt 4
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (DDS)
20,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe’s incredible experiments with Harry Bertoia’s sound sculptures are here documented on this beautiful new edition for Demdike Stare’s DDS imprint, coinciding with his appearance on the cover of this months issue of The Wire magazine.Lowe is something of a polymath; having started out as part of Math Rock outfit 90 day men and doom metal trio Om, he progressed to forge his own solo work (often under the Lichens moniker), as well as a whole slew of collaborations including work with Johann Johannsson on scoring both Arrival and Sicario, an acclaimed album with Ariel Kalma for RVNG Intl’s FRKWYS series, plus active involvement in site specific video art and sound installations. His most recent work under his own name has seen him release diverse music for Type, Latency, More Than Human and, of course DDS - who have with this album presented what might just be the most beautiful Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe artefact thus far.In 2016 Lowe was commissioned by New York’s museum of Arts and Design to contribute to a Harry Bertoia exhibition, which he undertook alongside video director Johann Rashid. He was asked to create sound recordings with Sonambient sculptures; metal rods and gongs that produce highly distinct, resonant sounds when struck, brushed or touched. Beginning in 1968, Bertoia set up an eighteenth-century stone barn on his property in Barto, Pennsylvania, to house these sculptures and from which he would go on to record works for his highly collectable Sonambientlabel, as recently documented on Important Records’ breathtaking box set and reissue series. Lowe was given full access to the barn, beautifully filmed footage of which can be found on youtube.Lowe’s work with these sculptures is quite unlike anything you might have heard from those original Bertoia recordings. Instead of serendipitous improvisation, Lowe weaves his way through the sculptures on a path that was mapped out in advance,imbuingthem with a more “composed” and arranged feel. As well as thatfamiliar and distinct sound palette, he subtly manipulates and feedsinvocal layers that take proceedings into ever more ethereal and haunting dimensions.
Orior - Still Strange Green Vinyl Edition
Still Strange Green Vinyl Edition
2LP | 2019 | EU | Original (DDS)
23,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
‘Still Strange’ reaches back into the prized loft tapes of Jeff Sharp aka Orior following the revelatory discovery of his overlooked early ‘80s gems on 2016’s ‘Strange Dream’ collection, as coaxed out by DDS dons Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty. Huddling another sublime, dusty set of analogue tapes freshly baked and remarkably well-restored by Andy Popplewell, ’Still Strange’ contains four gorgeous flashbacks to the era 1979-1983 surrounding and even pre-dating ‘Strange Beauty’, and then shifts focus to recordings that Orior made around the early ‘90s.
